True Solutions: Proven, Scalable and Fossil Free

We stand in solidarity with people around the world working to advance truly clean energy solutions and hasten the break from false solutions and fossil fuels. Permanently.

The Clean Energy Justice Convergence was a 3-day action during the 13th Clean Energy Ministerial in Pittsburgh on September 21-23, 2022. This ongoing work is dedicated to frontline communities and will shine a spotlight on the costs, health impacts and environmental devastation associated with extractive and fossil fuel-based energy initiatives.

What is Clean Energy?

True Solutions:



Fossil Free

Building off the tenets of environmental justice, clean energy justice refers to equity, affordability, accessibility and participation in the energy transition to non-polluting energy systems regardless of race, nationality, income or geographic location.

Clean Energy is NOT

False Solutions Like:

Carbon Capture


Any energy solution that relies on fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal is not clean. Fossil fuel energy systems perpetuate the “boom and bust” economic cycle that harms people and the environment over and over again. This includes blue, grey, pink and possibly even green hydrogen projects, carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS), petrochemicals and plastics manufacturing and nuclear energy.

We ask the Clean Energy Justice Ministers to reject false solutions and advance true clean energy solutions that are Proven, Scalable and Fossil Free.
